Adhering to a daily workout is no longer like pulling teeth to make it happen—inventive classes and fun atmospheres have turned sweat sessions into something we actually look forward to (like these 15 Next Big Fitness Trends). But there are still huge obstacles that can easily stand in your way of your daily burn, like crazy schedules, sky-high class prices, and inconvenient locations.

That's why we're flipping out over latest trend on Periscope, Twitter's live streaming service: Some of the best fitness instructors and studios around the world are taking advantage of the new app and live streaming workouts you can tune into and work up a sweat with—all for free.

"When it came out, it was just a no brainer," says Laura St. John, co-owner of Pearl Street Fitness in Denver, one of the latest fitness studios to hit the Periscope scene. "The idea was for people not to have an excuse to not be able to get a workout in." To quash any other excuses you may be able to come up with, St. John and most other studio have made their Periscope classes mostly equipment-free and, of course, financially free. (Did we mention it's free?!)

Most classes will post their Periscope schedule on their Twitter or Facebook. But who should you be following? To get in on some of the coolest new workouts in the world, check out these nine free classes on Periscope. (And if you want to attend a free fitness class IRL, see if any of our The Top 21 Free Fitness Classes in America are near you.)
